Club career[edit]

Vrgoč started his career playing at youth level for his hometown club Osijek. He was loaned to Druga HNL side Slavonac CO for the 2008–09 season and helped them secure a promotion spot to the Prva HNL. However, after they were unable to find a suitable ground for hosting matches, Slavonac CO were demoted to first county league. In September 2009, Vrgoč sustained a cruciate ligament injury during the preparations for the upcoming season. He underwent three surgeries during the period of one year and missed out 2009–10 season.[1][2] Manager Branko Karačić, who previously coached Vrgoč in Slavonac CO, included him in the team that underwent mid-season preparations in Turkey for the second part of the 2010–11 season.[3][4] He made his debut for the first team in a goalless draw against Lokomotiva on 25 February 2011.[5]
